    Fraudsters Busted in Classic Car Scam

    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

    Frauds and Cons will always be with us until the robots take over. It's nice to hear that there are people looking to catch them.

    The link was to a .pdf for the whole article -- maybe your browser won't handle a .pdf -- some won't --

    Here is the abstract -- not a .pdf -- that might work --

    That is another link where I have to register, and sign in just to read or download the document. No thanks.

    Back to the original subject...I'm happy to see that some of these creeps have been caught. Next is to see if any justice, compensation, and recovery is possible for the victims. I hope so.

    I'll bet in almost every case the victim thought he was getting a super deal and was afraid to lose out.
